With all the players being cut as the day goes on, which ones would you like to see the Teaxans go after? Here's a few that intrigue me.

Rocky Boiman (LB)
Rob Petitti (OT)
Darius Watts (WR)
Ron Dayne (RB) - If he's healthy.
Reggie McNeal (QB/WR/KR)
Adrian McPherson (QB)
Skyler Green (WR/KR)
Charles Rogers (WR) - Problems or not, you have to wonder what he might do in a different environment.
Omar Jacobs (QB)
Orien Harris (DT)
Kelly Butler (OT)
Chad Lavalais (DT)
Jerome Pathon (WR)

If we were to claim Charles Rogers off waivers, then we pay his current salary, correct? That could hurt...

Lavalais's a pretty nice player.

I think Rogers will clear waivers because nobody is going to pay his current salary. Some good DT's in Orien Harris and Chad Lavalais on that list. The aggie in me would jump for joy is we saw Reggie McNeal in a Texans uni.

Why'd we cut Antowain Smith? Dumb move to me. The choice kubiak had to make was between smith and chris taylor kubiak chose taylors youth and special teams play over smiths veteran leadership. Which is a really good choice in my book.. Taylor is going to get better and smith basicly has peaked. Tough decision to make though.

Sadly, Dayne has been a work in progress his entire pro career - I was a Giants fan growing up, and I was very excited about the Dayne pick back in 2000. You all know how that turned out - the message boards in NY approached the ferver of the Carr discussion here in Houston. I just don't think Dayne is the "one cut and go" type of back that Kubes wants.

MacPherson(who I had as the second best QB in his class, behind Orlovsky), CRog(who still oozes of untapped potential) and Kelly Butler would be the guys I'd be interested in of this bunch.

Talented or not, Charles Rogers isn't worth the effort. He's an injury-prone malcontent who's one blunt away from a full year's suspension for drug use. He's Ricky Williams without the body or work ethic. Unless he was given a contract that protected Houston about 12 different ways for conduct problems, I hope this team stays away.

Let's face it...if he were really that great, they wouldn't have gone looking for Corey Bradford. :eek:

09-02-2006, 07:45 PM
In addition to cutting Gaffney the eagles let a couple of very servicable db's go. The Texans should sign Matt Ware tonight,
From what I understand his college coach would limit his practice at times because he would hurt people. He's tough and can play CB and some safety, both positions where the texans need a little bench strength. And he's a decent ST player. I'm sure that was a tough cut for them.

Actually they cut 3 DB's that are decent but Ware was one of those guys you just felt like he was gonna be good, I'm a little disapointed that they let him go.

Make that 4 DB's I forgot about JR Reed who play safety and runs returns he would be a good pick up also, coming back from a major non football related njury but appeared to be back, Some one will take a shot on him.

Yeah, I have no doubt Ware will be picked up by somebody fairly soon. He isn't a bust by any means, I just chalked it up to there not being room for him on the roster.

I'd love to see Gaffney come back (which is doubtful, considering we didn't sign him before). Najeh Davenport would be a great pickup and would help carry the load at RB. Also, maybe for the practice squad we can pick up Omar Jacobs (QB depth instead of Quinton Porter), Andre Hall, or Charles Gordon. Hall and Gordon were players that should have been drafted in the mid to late rounds who weren't drafted and I would love to see us give them a try even though it hasn't worked out for them so far.

Any thoughts on Najeh Davenport? He was released by Green Bay.

Great back when healthy.............unfortunately healthy has nevver been a word describing him throughout his career:


Davenport had just missed his second straight day of practice after dropping out of Tuesday night's workout because of a strained hip flexor. The fifth-year running back also missed six practices earlier in camp with a calf injury.


Davenport started the Packers' first two exhibition games with Green still recovering from his ruptured quadriceps tendon and rushed for 41 yards in 17 attempts.

But his injury history is troubling, as he has never played a full 16-game season.

Davenport missed the final 11 weeks of last season after having two pins surgically inserted into the two bones just above his right ankle the day after the New Orleans game. As a rookie in 2002, he missed three weeks of training camp while recovering from foot surgery, two games with a pulled hamstring and the final six games with a fractured eye socket suffered at Minnesota. He also missed one game in 2003 with a wrist injury and five in 2004 with pulled hamstrings.

All told, he has played in 39 of 64 possible regular-season games

Agreed. He wouldn't exactly need to be on the field much if he were signed by the Texans, who've settled on their #1 and #2, but I'm guessing there's a certain Texans assistant head coach who knows perfectly well whether Najeh's even worth bringing down for a look.... :spy:

Not worth it, IMO. If we wanted to keep a guy on the roster who may or may not ever be healthy, we could've kept #37.

From KFFL.com (http://www.kffl.com/player/1572/nfl) (edited for format)

Dolphins | Beasley still leading competition at fullback
Fri, 25 Aug 2006: Armando Salguero, of the Miami Herald, reports Miami Dolphins FB Fred Beasley continues to hold off FB Darian Barnes for the team's starting fullback spot.

Dolphins | Team terminates Beasley’s contract
Sat, 2 Sep 2006: MiamiDolphins.com reports the Miami Dolphins have terminated the contract of FB Fred Beasley.
================================

Not a bad player and a longtime vet, but I'm guessing based on the Luchey cut that the Texans will continue to expect Joppru to fill the FB role. Probably no role for him in Houston.

Side note: that means the Dolphins now have a total of 2 RBs and 1 FB on their roster. Wow.

I would love to see Reggie McNeal (QB/WR/KR), because he can play multiple postions. The only reason he was cut is because of all the depth at the WR postion. Charles Gordan can also play multiple postions at WR/CB. I believe that both could give us that depth we need at WR/CB and contribute to our ST.

The Raiders also cut veteran CB Duane Starks. He was a pretty good cover guy, but I think he's lost a step or three over the years. He couldn't cut it with the Patriots & now he can't make the cut with the Raiders. He was pretty good early in his career when he was with the Cards & Ravens. It's a shame if he goes out like this.

Finally some word of the COLTS cuts this morning by ProFootballTalk.

***************************
POSTED 8:16 a.m. EDT, September 3, 2006

COLTS CUTS . . . FINALLY

Several readers have advised us that the Indianapolis Colts have deliberately withheld their list of final roster cuts from the public, opting to defer the disclosure until Sunday morning. The speculation is that the team's primary goal was to prevent the Indianapolis Star from getting the information into its Sunday editions, in direct retribution for the paper's coverage of the Adam Vinatieri injury. The Colts apparently are furious with the Star for getting quotes from Vinatieri's mom suggesting that the high-profile free-agent (well, as high-profile as a free-agent kicker can ever be) has a broken foot.

The team's decision to announce only the cut of backup kicker Shane Andrus is thus being perceived as a slap directly at the Star, since it leaves Vinatieri as the only kicker on the roster.

But thanks to our pal Howard Balzer, we've gotten our mitts on the Colts final cut list, before its announcement. Here they are: K Shane Andrus, DB Waine Bacon, QB Josh Betts, DT Vincent Burns, DB Tanard Davis, LB Nick Hannah, TE Joey Hawkins, WR Ed Hinkel, P Reggie Hodges, RB Tony Hollings, LB Brandown Hoyte, G Trever Hutton, DT Tom Johnson, T Bo Lacy, LB Dale Robinson, G Russ Tanner, G Matt Ulrich, DT Marcus West (injured), DE Jonathan Welsh, WR Marc Boerigter, QB Shaun King, RB Jonathan Wells.

The release of King leaves the Colts with only two quarterbacks -- Peyton Manning and Jim Sorgi. And Sorgi suffered a shoulder injury two weeks ago in a preseason game.

Rob Pettiti could really help you guys out, and it won't be long till he's picked up by a team. Forced to start several games with the injury of Flozell Adams, he struggled like any rookie would, though showed his moments. During the off-season, he really bulked up and came in TC as the leading canidate for the RT position, but I guess wasn't good enough for the Tuna, which shocked the Cowboy fanbase, as only a week earlier Parcells said he'd be used as "swing" guy.

Davenport is interesting, huge, fast, 5 ypc on the career. He's 27... if he doesn't produce immediately his football career is over. Alot of talent, a little motivation, and a change of scenery might make up for some previous character issues and questionable health. Durability really is only an issue for RBs when you lock them up long term... just work 'em 'til they get hurt seems to be the trend anyways.

Calico is intriguing as well.

Dayne couldn't pound his way through a wet paper bag. He is not very good and I would be really dissapointed if we took him. I would rather see Davenport but the reality is we will likely see neither.

For those of you who are picking guys we may take. First ask yourself "Can this guy play special teams?". Because unless they can somehow make the starting lineup they will need to contribute in some way now. Does anyone see Charles Rogers running down on kickoffs? I don't, but I also have not watched many Lions games. He could have been doing it all this time for all I know. :cool:
